We're just as obsessed with America Ferrera's accent chair as we are with her empowering monologue from Barbie, so of course, we're eager to copy her chic living room style. 

Ahead of a date night, the actor took to Instagram to show off her grey wrap dress with black pumps. She looked amazing, but it was her design game, and the gorgeous white accent chair in the photo's background that really caught our eye. 

Needless to say, our space is about to get a cozy upgrade, America-style. If you're in need of a few small living room ideas and want a statement piece, allow the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star's vintage chair to dish out some inspiration. 

The vintage Jindrich Halabala Mongolian sheepskin chair, an art deco delight, perfectly captures one of the many TikTok interior design trends dwellers are turning to in 2024, bringing about a vintage revival. The chair itself was created in the '30s, and the throwback can average anywhere up to $5,000. Some renditions of the Czech designer's famous piece will set you back a whopping $8,000.

"America Ferrera's chair is an iconic design that pairs lush textures with exotic hardwoods and sleek curves for an effortless fashion-forward style," says interior designer Nicole Cullum. "She has captured our hearts with her incredible talent, sweet personality, and authentic charm, but it’s her chic style that always catches our eye."

However, when arranging furniture in a small living room, a $5,000 chair isn't always accessible, so we did some digging for similar styles with durable quality and positive customer reviews so your space can look like America's without the celebrity price tag. 

Shop the look

If you're opting for something striking like this mid-century modern style, you're going to want to make sure it's the star of the show. Declutter your space, pair it with warm, inviting colors, and make sure the lighting in your living shows off the chair's lovable qualities. 

"Since the chair is already a statement piece due to its unique texture, I recommend pairing it with smoother, more subdued textures in the living room," says Floss Kelly, co-founder of TileCloud. "Think sleek leather sofas, smooth wooden coffee tables, or soft, plain-colored cushions."
